Atlanta Beauty Event: Naturally Pretty

MiMi J and Natural Chica at P3 Lab
2 years ago, when Carol's Daughter opened their store in Atlanta, I went to meet and interview owner Lisa Price for my blog. While interviewing Lisa I met this girl named Mae with a cute tiny afro and pretty skin who was interviewing her too. Fast forward to 2011, I ran into Mae again, whose hair is now huge and gorgeous, at a Curly Nikki meetup. Once I got home, I went back to her blog, and saw that her audience has quadrupled! I said to myself, "I've got to do something with her!" Then the light bulb came on. I contacted her about collaborating on an event, and the rest is history....

Maeling Tapp, of, and myself are pleased to present Naturally Pretty: The Fusion of Natural Hair and Beauty this Fall in Atlanta, GA. Naturally Pretty will platform various Atlanta beauty professionals and celebrate the fusion of skincare, makeup, natural hair, art, and music while benefiting the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children.

Naturally Pretty will be held in a beautiful art gallery forum located in the Defoor Centre on October, 27, 2011 at 7pm. The event will evoke energy and artistry while igniting each of the five senses with each step invited guests take. Industry leaders in cosmetics, skincare, and natural hair care will convene collaboratively to educate and inform event goers of how to bring out their natural beauty through complimentary consultations and live beauty demonstrations. Aside from the wall-to-wall beauty installations, invited guests will enjoy live musical performances, celebrity guest appearances, prize giveaways, and light fare. In efforts to give back to women who need to rebuild their self-esteem and assist them in finding their inner/outer beauty, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children in downtown Atlanta.

Confirmed participates are Robin Groover of Too Groovy and Sutera Hair Spa, Yolanda Owens of Iwi Fresh and Pampered Nail and Spa, Nails by Jayh, P3 Lab, and celebrity makeup artists Jeremy Dell and Alexandra Butler.

I'm Inspired: Photographer Celeste Canino

Photographer Celeste Canino and Makeup Artist MiMi J

I recently took a trip to the west coast and I wanted to make sure that I got with some awesome folks whose work inspires me. While I was preparing for my visit, I was browsing through some photos online from LA photographers. Of course when you find an awesome photo, you have to find out who shot it right?!

Well my first photographer feature of "I'm Inspired" is of celebrity photographer Celeste Canino. Celeste hails from sunny Los Angeles, CA and her amazing group shots have been seen on various ads such as Planet Hollywood, American Apparel, and Windsor. She even got to be the featured photographer on this season's premiere of America's Next Top Model and shot all of the collateral for the show! How awesome is that?!

I caught up with Celeste during my trip to LA at Universal City Walk. Check out the interview I had with Celeste and check out! PS. you may see us collaborate in the near future! (*wink*)

Beauty Behind the Beat: Algebra Blessett

When working with celebrities and music artists, sometimes you never know what to expect! Will it be a demanding diva who wants the world of you? Or will it be someone inspirational who turns you into a fan in 2.5 nanoseconds? Thankfully, singer/songwriter Algebra Blessett was the latter. As I arrived on set of her photoshoot in Atlanta, I was welcomed by this lovely southern songbird's beautiful smile and matching personality. You may have heard her angelic voice on Anthony David's latest single Forever More, but Algebra is no stranger to the music scene. She's worked with artists such as Monica, Bilal, India Arie, and released her debut album "Purpose" in 2008 which stayed on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for 14 weeks.  I got the chance to sit down and talk to her about her latest project and music career. Check out my interview with Algebra and behind the scenes footage of her photoshoot with Laretta Houston.

I'm Inspired: Makeup Artist Stephen Moleski

As I mature in my career as a makeup artist, I love to find inspiration in other successful entrepreneurs and artists. It's very motivating and encouraging to see that someone has paved a way and is living out their dreams.

Well my first feature of "I'm Inspired" is of celebrity makeup artist Stephen Moleski. Stephen hails from Atlanta, GA and his brushes have touched the faces of celebs like Kim Kardashian, Mel B., and Nicole Scherzinger. He's had television appearances on "Keeping up with the Kardashians”, “E! News,” “Girls Next Door,” “Extra” and “The Insider”. His work has also been published in Vanity Fair, People, Details, FHM, Radar, Maxim, Playboy,  and Women's Health.

I caught up with Stephen in Atlanta at a beauty mixer event to promote his new eyelash line called Smoke and Mirrors Beauty. Check out the interview I had with Stephen and check out!
